The other vital component of this dish is the Airfryer! I adore my Phillips Airfryer for baking up just about anything in a fraction of the time your oven takes. I love my Airfryer so much that I bought a second one for my office! From cooking up homemade crispy chicken tenders and frozen fish fillets, to making a batch of Airfryer Parmesan Dill Fried Pickle Chips, it is the best small appliance you can buy for your kitchen! When I am feeling particularly lazy, I will throw a simple meal of steak and sweet potato fries or some pre-made frozen chicken strips in and I have food on the table in just 10 minutes!
The best part about Airfryers is how crispy it cooks your food with little to no oil or fat. For these Airfryer Baked Thai Peanut Chicken Egg Rolls you can brush them with sesame oil or just give them a quick spray with non-stick cooking spray to crisp them up. For any pre-made breaded items, I don’t even bother with any oil at all!
My coworker was so impressed with my Airfryer that I brought into the office that he bought one for himself at home. He did a side-by-side comparison of chicken tenders and homemade french fries in the Airfryer and oven. He reported back that the Airfryer cooked everything not only quicker, but crispier as well! If that doesn’t sound like a win-win, I don’t know what does.
You can whip up these Airfryer Baked Thai Peanut Chicken Egg Rolls in less than 20 minutes. Layer the egg roll wrappers with thin slices of carrots, red peppers and green onions and top with the chicken tossed in the homemade Thai Peanut Sauce. Wrap them up using water to seal the edges and give them a few sprays of non-stick cooking spray. Pop them in your Airfryer and bake them at the highest temperature for 6-8 minutes.
Another great benefit to the Airfryer is that you don’t have to feel bad about cooking up a small meal just for yourself. No more heating up the large oven and subsequently the entire kitchen for a quick meal. Let the magic of the hot air circulation in your Airfryer do the job much more efficiently!
